This Group A matchup will feature the Czech Republic and Russia in a game that will take place from Warsaw. Up to date odds for this game can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Russian squad is the favorite to win Group A as they have the most talented club of those in the group. They made it to the semifinals in 2008 and will be looking to build on that this year. Russia does face some injury concerns and it has been reported that some of their key players are not getting along with coach Dick Advocaat. The situation regarding the coach in definitely worth monitoring. We could very well see breakout tournament from the likes of Alan Dzagoev and also goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev. Dzagoev is the playmaker and all the offense typically flows through him.
You will see a lot of familiar faces for the Czech side as they are a team with a lot of experience. That veteran core of players is headlined by goalkeeper Peter Cech. This may be the last international competition where they are all together and the emphasis will be on scoring goals, something they have struggled with.
As we mentioned before the Russian squad should be exciting to watch. The Czech’s are favored in this one because of their experience. We think however that their offensive troubles are a little bit away from being fixed. Give us Russia in a moneyline bet as a slight underdog so before wagering get sportsbook promo codes.
